Trades students at North Island College are benefiting from an investment in new technology at the post-secondary institution.
The Province has provided $187,000, which was used to purchase new equipment for the electrician, heavy mechanical, and welding programs.
Instructor Chris Udy says having up-to-date equipment makes a big difference for the students in their training.
Comox Valley MLA Don McRae says having up-to-date equipment in training programs are important for communities across the North Island.
The new equipment is located at North Island College‘s Campbell River Campus.
